Ok, so yesterday I stopped by Anthro at lunch to try some stuff on for fun. And here goes:
Tiny Windows Dress
I never felt the need to try this one on because it reminded me a lot of the beda dress, which I own. I expected to really hate this or feel totally matronly in it. But I didn't hate it. I just wasn't wow'd by it. The fabric is comfortable and the color is nice but I just didn't need another beda/sweet treasure type shirt dress. For me, I like the look of the beda dress better compared to this one. But now that it's on sale, it's a great alternative for someone that's trying to find a good shirt dress.
Castle Lake Dress
Sorry folks, I couldn't find this online so I'm not quite sure what it's called. But seeing me in it, would this intrigue you? I think this is ALL wrong for me. I decided to follow Cat's example and try stuff on just in the event something works, but THIS obviously wasn't that piece. I believe the material is silk, and it was see through. For me, I wouldn't even know what to layer under it that won't distract it from the beautiful flower design. Also, it has a dropped elastic waist, which is a no-no for me. I can see this being cute on someone super tall and thin, but on me, it looked like maternity wear.
That's it! I leave you with my lunch-dessert. Someone brought these maple bacon bars to work. It's from a donut shop near where I live and it's great!!! I know many of you have heard of this concoction, but not a lot have tried it. And just let me say, it's heavenly! Bacon, maple, and dough? It's like THE perfect breakfast donut. This particular bacon was caramalized while cooked. It's not overwhelmingly sweet because the donut itself isn't too sweet, which I love! YUM!
